In an unusual turn of events, former CEO of BlackBerry Jim Balsillie has liquidated all of his shares in BlackBerry.
Some may have noticed his absence from the BlackBerry 10 launch while a smiling Mike Lazaridus was in attendance, so maybe this isn't shocking news. We've also heard reports before that he had a difference of opinion of where he felt BlackBerry should go forward with the board of directors. As such, maybe this isn't a huge surprise.
Upon the CEO stepping down, Jim Balsillie received a payout of $7.93m.
With all the cash on hand, no doubt he's planning on setting up a new venture or buying a super yacht.
